The Original Romar House Bed & Breakfast Inn

23500 Perdido Beach Boulevard , Orange Beach, AL 36561 USA (Show map)


There is nothing like this 1920's Beach House on the beach from New Orleans to Destin! As the golden sun disappears beyond the white sandy beach, another memorable evening begins at The Original Romar House, Alabama's first seaside Bed&Breakfast Inn. Listen to the palm trees rustle in the wind, smell the salty air, and feel the cool Gulf breeze. Blending styles from the Caribbean to Australia into a delightful atmosphere all its own!
